? >> you know, i long made it a practice never to bet on hillary clinton. although i would never bet against her. so, i think you know, there are millions of americans including me who are very much hoping that she gets enough rest and feels good about having a political career and runs for president, but she's xwt a lot of options. and you know, she needs to look no further than her husband to find another really good option. i think president bill clinton has really led the way as a role model for having a really effective and important life with a big impact on the world, a good impact on the world without elected office. and so she's got options. >> she certainly does. i want to ask you and switch gears a little bit, the inauguration coming up. there has been pushback against the president for not having enough diversity in his cabinet in his second term. jane fonda, gloria steinham are asking him to appoint a woman to head up the fcc. what do you make of this. >> nobody's a bigger fan of gloria and jane fonda than i am. he hasn't indicated he's going anywhere. people need to giv

of the mobile devices and i bet everyone in this room has a mobile device and if i went to grab it from you, you would think i was stealing the most important thing that you have. i'm not going to do it. they act in ways that really make a lot of sense. if we take one of those areas that we mentioned, milwaukee, and the example you gave was in some of the less democracy parts of the world where democracy is in short supply and technology can provide a check and balance and a product for accountability, what about the mature democracies. we just had an election in this country. did that teach any lessons, were there any technology lessons to be drawn from this year's election? >> it's always hard to reason from one event. the winners get to write history and the losers sort of think about the next election. there is no connection that the obama campaign, because i was part of it, had a technology that helped elect the president. it was cloud computing, servers and targeted programs and get out the vote. so that is to say this is to governments are going to change, too. on the one hand, the govern

the parties. if i were a betting person, i would generally bet against gun control legislation in congress. >> bill: maybe that's one of the reasons why i think it is, the reason why the president stressed yesterday, made that point. he could not expect congress to act unless the american people really make such -- such an uproar that congress has to respond. that's happened before and the president calling on the american people yesterday to basically give congress a swift kick in the butt. >> yeah, again i don't dismiss the possibility that something could happen. i think that there are certain issues that have more resonance with the american public than others. >> bill: background check. >> the background checks. even if it's not exactly what the president is proposing here in terms of universal background check, perhaps there's some -- middle ground there that makes it -- i'm quoting his statistic i don't know this independently but he said 40% of guns are bought sort of through that gun show loophole. maybe there's a way to narrow that percentage. >> bill: the most important measures
